This week's very timely case was donated by George at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The following objects were seen in a wet mount of a concentrated stool specimen. They measure less than 20 micrometers in dimension and do not have an apparent operculum.
Every week I will post a new Case, along with the answer to the previous case. Please feel free to write in with your answers, comments, and questions. Also check out my image archive website at http://parasitewonders.com. Enjoy!
